William IV silver neck ring
(collar) WINE LABEL
Burrows and Pearce, London, 1833
gauge silver, the round collar with reeded edges, incised 'SHERRY'
The bottle collar type of label is considered
"one of the better designs...with its raked
sides it sits well on the shoulders of decanters of the period".
The first rings were made c1750 by Sandilands Drinkwater (best known
for his escutcheon labels).
However examples prior to 1790 are uncommon,
most form the early 19th century.
